Touhey Abandoned

Revised plans showing abandoned tracks at Touhey, WA.  The last revised date on these plans show January 1986 and few months later the tracks would be taken out.  The name Byron was changed to Touhey in 1911.  The Right-of-Way still exists today, but is no longer owned by the railroad.  Here is link to the abandonment documents for the Mansfield Branch Line.

Sheet No. 14 of abandonment drawing set.  Milepost 53.5 to 58.

This drawing below shows a 32' x 100' warehouse constructed along the Touhey Siding.  First time I've seen any evidence of this structure.

The elevator belonged to the Waterville Union Grain Co. and the Warehouse was owned by the Seattle Grain Co.
